Life - Journey - Fusion

I consider myself to be a “True Entrepreneur”. Michele has joined in on most of my businesses, even though she still works what I like to call – her “J” “O” “B” which is greater than 40 hours a week.

One of Shane’s favorite quotes:
I Didn’t want a 9 to 5 job, so I became an entrepreneur – Now I work 24/7

From our cruise - Celebrity Equonox, March 14th 2024

Being able to blend work and leisure while traveling certainly offers a fantastic unique lifestyle balance. Having the flexibility to work from anywhere with Wi-Fi opens up a world of possibilities. We have so many favorite destinations that we've traveled to for both business and pleasure.

That list continues to grow of where we want to go next!

We Love to Share our Experiences

I have people ask offten if we are Influencers.. I kindly Reply NO, we are sharer's of Experiences!

An influencer is someone who builds a large following on social media by promoting products, brands, experiences, and a desirable lifestyle. Their goal is to influence their audience's opinions, purchases, and behaviors for commercial gain. Influencers work to cultivate an aspirational personal brand and image. They partner with companies to advertise products and services to their followers. Influencers make money through sponsored content, affiliate commissions, merchandise sales, and appearance fees. In contrast, someone who shares experiences does so mainly for the joy of storytelling and connecting with others. They don't seek money or fame. Their motivation is to document their life, travels, hobbies, or interests in an authentic way. They build community through relatable content that entertains and inspires their audience. Their income doesn't rely on promoting brands or driving sales. Any partnerships or sponsorships align organically with their passions. While influencers carefully curate their posts to achieve a polished aesthetic, experience sharers have a more casual style. Their goal isn't to sell a lifestyle but rather to build meaningful connections with others who share their interests and values. Their content aims to be helpful, not promotional. In summary, the main difference is that influencers monetize their following to boost brands and make money, while experience sharers focus on storytelling and community building without commercial motives. Influencers sell a lifestyle but experience sharers share life.

Everyone's Dream is to Enjoy Life!

Shane and Michele's lives are intertwined with travel, documenting their adventures through cruises, casinos, and group activities. Ever since that fateful first trip when Shane invited Michele to Las Vegas, bringing together their shared love of gambling and excitement, they have embarked on cruise after cruise to continue exploring the world and their passions. Now cruising over 4-5 times a year, they have found a way to combine their enjoyment of travel on the seas with their penchant for games of chance. Onboard and on land, they host lively group slot pulls, gathering new friends and old to try their luck on the machines. The bright lights of the casino call to them just as much mid-ocean with the sea breeze in their hair as it does docked on solid ground. Wherever they may roam, from port to port or a quick jaunt to Ho-Chunk Casino in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin near their home, Shane and Michele chase adventure together. Through cruises, casinos, and group events, they have built a life of travel, chance, and lasting memories.
